The Fish in Judaism
The fish symbolizes fertility and is commonly used as a fertility amulet.
In Judaism, sometimes Sephardic Jews (a subgroup of Jews originating in the Iberian Peninsula), use the symbol of a fish in their household to repel the Evil Eye.This originates from the Talmud - where it is stated that fish are immune from the evil eye because they are under water, making a fish an effective amulet!
Star of David
The Star of David is known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David
The Shield of David is a generally recognized symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism.
History of the Shield of David (from Wikipedia)
The Star of David in the oldest surviving complete copy of the Masoretic text, the Leningrad Codex, dated 1008. The Menorah on the Arch of Titus: notice the three stems on each side plus the central stem, totaling seven. Likewise the Shield of David came to be understood as seven, with two triangles of three points each united around a central point.
By modern times, the Shield of David hexagram has become a widely recognized symbol to represent the Jewish people. However the origins of this use are complex with obscure developments emerging since medieval times. Star of David pendant
Roman Glass is an ancient glass, discovered in archaeological excavation sites in Israel. Israel is one of the few locations in the world in which a series of geological and climatic phenomena coincide enabling the formation and preservation of the strikingly colorful glass.
Made from the hand-blown fragments of ancient perfume pots, lamps, flasks, vases, cups, and bowls dating back to 100 BC found by archaeologists sifting through the fallen pillars and once magnificent cities of the Roman Empire. Almost two thousand years of conflict with mineral rich soil and oxidation combine to form this precious glass.
The fine Sterling Silver Roman Glass Jewelry is one of the most popular types and styles originated from Israel. The designs for the jewels are based on artifacts and drawings also discovered on the archaeological digs.
